Audition/Dark Water/The Eye (Japan/Singapore/Hong Kong)
Three classics to remind you why the new wave of Asian horror has been ripped off by Hollywood so often! A single man looking for a good time finds terror instead in the notorious Audition , directed by cult auteur Takashi Miike (Ichi The Killer, Visitor Q). The man who kicked off the J-horror wave with Ring, Hideo Nakata, increases the tension, realism and unease in the urban nightmare Dark Water , since remade by Hollywood. Finally, Pan-asian auteurs The Pang Bros. bring their famed editing skills to bear on the horror genre in the tense, terrifying, The Eye.
